Short-Term Disability
When accident or illness strike.

 

Coverage employees need when it counts the most.

For most employees, the ability to earn an income is their most valuable asset. Disability insurance from ManhattanLife helps protect an employee’s and their family’s assets in the event of a disability or illness. ManhattanLife offers two different short-term disability policies – ManhattanLife Disability Income Plus as part of our Prestige series, and CentralCare Disability through our Premier series.

DISABILITY STATISTICS

51M

At least 51 million working adults in the United States are without disability insurance other than the basic coverage available through Social Security.1

5.6%

Approximately 1 of every 20 working Americans, or 5.6%, will experience a short-term disability (six months or less) due to illness, injury, or pregnancy on average every year. Almost all of these are non-occupational in origin.2

$400

Almost half of American adults indicate they can’t pay an unexpected $400 bill without having to take out a loan or sell something to do so.3

DISABILITY INCOME PLUS HIGHLIGHTS

When an accident or illness leaves an employee disabled, Disability Income Plus can help. It provides a monthly benefit while he or she is no longer able to work, helping pay bills, covering housing costs, food, car payments, or additional medical costs. Benefits begin the first day after the waiting period and are payable through the duration of the benefit period, or until recovery, whichever occurs first.

 

DISABILITY INCOME PLUS BENEFITS

This is not a policy of workers’ compensation insurance. The employer does not become a subscriber to the Workers’ Compensation System by purchasing this policy, and if the employer is a non-subscriber, the employer loses those benefits that would otherwise accrue under the Workers’ Compensation Laws. The employer must comply with the Workers’ Compensation Law as it pertains to the non-subscribers and the required notifications that must be filed and posted.
